Before Gervonta Davis, and Hector Luis Garcia do battle in the main event of SHOWTIME PPV this Saturday January 7 from Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions, Philly’s next star, Jaron “Boots” Ennis is looking to turn heads in the co-main event as he fights for the IBF interim welterweight world title against lesser known Karen Chukhadzhian, who is the highest rated mandatory opponent who would face him at this time.
“I know Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford are holding up the division right now, but whatever way I can get my hands on the belts, I’ll be ready. I just want to fight. I’m young, hungry and I’m going to keep shining and demolishing these guys they put in front of me,” said Ennis at the media workout on Wednesday. ““I know Spence says he’s the ‘big fish,’ but we like to go fishing. If I have to sit on the side and ride a jet ski for a while, that’s okay for now. You know what happens when they bring a fish to land right? They squirm.”
It is clear that Ennis looks the part of the a future legend of the sport, and is calling out names.
“I am looking to put on a statement for the world,” said Ennis on Thursday’s press conference when speaking to what he expects from this fight.
It is clear fight fans want to see Ennis in with the best, but now the next chapter will be, can it happen, as boxing is having trouble delivering on the big fights.
